Spring is in the air!
Latvia is among one of the world's three most important bird migration paths, and during migration seasons tens of thousands birds can be seen at one place. During the tour you will spent significant time along the sea cost in order to catch the highlights of migration. In spring time also flood-lands become alive with activities of thousands of birds and provide great atmosphere for birdwatchers. Different biotops are explored to get the best impressions of the spring migration.
